Some good news for those of you who enjoy seeing films locally in South Petherton. Petherton Picture Show - which presents films on alternate Fridays at South Petherton's David Hall - has been awarded £3,600 from the Lottery-funded UK Film Council. The money has been used to purchase new projection equipment, which has already been installed."We are thrilled to have received this donation, which allows us to provide an even more professional presentation for members of Petherton Picture Show," said Iain Wilkinson, who is on the Board of the Petherton Arts Trust as well as being one of the Picture Show organisers.

Petherton Picture Show (PPS) has become one of The David Hall's most popular regular events. "Our aim is to continue the provision of a cinema in the village - something which began at the start of the last century," said Mr Wilkinson. As PPS is a registered film society membership is required, but is free of charge and offered at all film showings. The last film of 2004 - "A Mighty Wind", by the Director of "This is Spinal Tap" and "Best in Show" - is on Friday 17th December and the new season of films begins on Friday 7th January. The programme for January-April 2005 will be available from mid-December. For details, call 01460 240 340 or e-mail
